"Why did it have to eeeend?! It left off on a cliffhanger but I promise it’s so worth it!! Quite possibly my alltime favorite anime. Of all time! I couldn’t love it more, but I do. The queer representation, the mental health; the characters, their friendships. Argh, I love it so muuuuch!!"
"I LOVED THIS SO MUCH!!!! Not only were the characters amazing but so was the animation and story! This isn’t your average sports anime, it’s more like trauma with a side of tennis. It unfortunately is left on a cliff hanger as the creator isn’t able to get a season 2 right now, but it is said that they hope to continue in the future! So maybe if it gets more popular the story will continue!!!"
